Must-Have Autumn/Winter Trends with a Punk Edge

Hey Cats

With all the offerings of the seasonal fashion scene, it can be a bit tricky to sift through them all and find the ones that are the perfect fit for your seasonal collection. Luckily, the Autumn/Winter 2016 catwalks were dotted with pieces that combined retro details, feminine silhouettes, and edgy finishes all in one go. Add these cold-weather trends to your wardrobe to infuse your ensembles with just the right amount of glam-punk style.

Shearling Bomber Jackets

When it comes to timeless outerwear, there’s no denying that the bomber jacket is at the top of the list of styles that seem to reappear season after season. This time around, the classic silhouette is joined by another vintage-inspired detail: shearling. Seen lining nearly every bomber jacket that floated down the runways this fall, shearling is equal parts warm and cool.The Huffington Post notes that this outerwear staple comes in an array of colours, from neutral shades to wildly vibrant hues, and can be oversized or fitted with the shearling trim hugging the neck and edges of the coat. Thanks to these modern updates, the bomber is once again the must-have statement maker of the season.

Combat Boots

It goes without saying that boots are an essential wardrobe item during the chilly fall and winter seasons. But when it comes to which boots to wear, the decision isn’t always as much of a no-brainer. Luckily, designers all seem to agree that there is one style worth investing in this season: the combat boot. Combining comfort with military-inspired details, the combat boot is reflective of the punk and grunge fashion movement that is once again at the forefront of style. You simply can’t go wrong with this trend, whether you opt for a flat, lace-up style in classic black leather or a chunky heel in a bold hue. And there's much more than just Dr. Martens. Many major designers are offering their own military inspired shoes as seen in Lyst's assortment of boots from Ferragamo. Not sure what to pair them with? Try wearing yours with a collarless wool jacket and skinny cut-off jeans to create the perfect weekend ensemble with a no d to punk style.

Dramatic Black

If the majority of your outfits generally consist of black, black, and more black, this season’s goth-inspired trend is right up your alley. Who What Wear says that this is no gentle foray into lightweight goth garb either. Designers have opted for full-on dramatic, theatrical ensembles that match the steampunk Victorian era with modern twists like denim jackets or tweed skirt suits. Of course, as with any fashion trend, there’s always a little bit of wiggle room in the interpretation, whether that means rocking your favourite head-to-toe black ensembles with no shame or mixing in more metallic hardware-embellished pieces. With this trend, there’s no such thing as too much drama.

  1. I'm loving the gothic black thing ... perhaps a bit too much. However, my ultimate go-to this year seems to be a mini skirt and knee-highs ... I'm scarcely seen out of that formula right now!
